Starting with the higher spec model of the pairing, the ASUS ROG Strix X570-E includes the gaming-focused Realtek RTL8125G 2.5 GbE LAN with a second port controlled by an Intel I211-AT Gigabit controller, with the wireless capabilities coming from the new Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6 802.11ax adapter. The board boasts three full-length PCIe 4.0 slots which operate at x16, x8/x8, and x8/x8/x4, with the final four being from the chipset. The Strix themed chipset heatsink has two M.2 heatsinks emanating from the top and bottom side for the boards dual PCIe 4.0 M.2, with a cooling fan integrated which is designed to keep the X570 chipset cool. The ROG Strix X570-E also has eight SATA ports and four DDR4 memory slots.
Also featured are seven USB 3.1 G2 Type-A, one USB 3.1 G2 Type-C, and four USB 3.1 G1 Type-A ports on the rear panel. A SupremeFX S1220 HD audio codec adds five color-coded 3.5 mm jacks, and an S/PDIF optical out.
